I really like Bolano. Every time I think about how I really like Bolano though I hear Ben Gibbard in my head un-ironically defending Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" as being a good song. "Because it's good. It's really really good." And then there are all the cool goodreaders and Karen (who is a cool goodreader, but also exists in real life), giggling uncontrollably and laughing at my enjoyment of Bolano, just like those hipsters are doing in the Ben Gibbard bootleg I downloaded somewhere a bunch [...]

Ufff Uh, what to say about this one? That it's as accessible as his best novella "Amulet"; that, like his other smaller efforts (not, obviously, the behemoths "Savage Detectives" or "2666") there's just not that much there, that you as a reader must work with as little as possible to tie up strands and place together symbols and plots with other works of his; that at the crossroads between cinematography, the sciences, and literature (prose AND poetry) we set our scene with as much tragedy eatin [...]

"Mösyö Pain" Bolano'nun, dev eserlerinden sonra okumuş olduğum en ilgi çekici eseri diyebilirim rahatlıkla. Türkçede yayımlanmış bütün Bolano kitapları (Lümpen Roman hariç) okuyucuyu aynı dünyaya davet eder, atmosfer açısından birbirleriyle karışıktırlar. Fakat bu kez çok daha farklı bir dünya var. Ancak bu farklılığa rağmen yine Bolano romanları arasında kurabildiğimiz bağlantılar hemen kendini gösteriyor. Yazar, kitapları arasında sürekli ipler gerer, b [...]

" Jean Claude Pelletier, Bonno von archimboldi’yi ilk olarak 1980 yılının Noel’inde, Alman edebiyatı eğitimi almak için gittiği Paris’te, yani daha 19 yaşındayken okumuştu. Bahsi geçen kitap, D’Arsonval’di.”Bolano’nun öleyazdığı 2666 böyle başlıyor. Peki bunun ilk romanı Mösyö Pain’le ilgisi ne derseniz, aslında yok, elbette Bolano’ya dair Archimboldi takıntısı olan okur hariç. Mösyö Pain’de D’Arsonval karşımıza Curie’ün arkadaşı olarak k [...]

bolano edebiyatın meselesi ve gerçekliğiyle hayatın meselesi ve gerçekliğini buluşturmayı başarabilen bir yazar. edebiyata hayat verebiliyor, hayatı edebiyatlaştırabiliyor. yetenekle de çalışmayla da ulaşılabilecek yazarlık seviyesinin üzerinde, özel bir konumda. bu sebeple para ve ödül için yazdığı ilk romanlardan biri olsa da, başka kriterlerle değerlendirildiğinde kusurları bulunsa da mösyö pain özünde eşsiz bir cevher bulunduran bir roman. kahramanımız b [...]

>Wherever the sun doesn't go I don't go either. Except to pubs. -- Bohumil HrabalMonsignor Pain is a delightful construction. It is a blurred exposure. It is an appropriate paranoiac period piece; the Paris of 1938 teemed with suspicions and throttled aspirations. Bolano's titular protagonist is a haunted sort, gassed during the Great War and living on a pension, he's an Occultist and a confident. His bleery hopes are all unrequited. He stumbles and yet clings. A downpour of madness and paran [...]

"I do also recall, however, that for Terzeff every death had a ritual function; death, indeed, was the only genuine rite left in the world."-- Roberto Bolaño, Monsieur Pain "Geometry, everything was geometry and shit."-- Roberto Bolaño, Monsieur Pain A weird little Bolaño. A novella (Bolaño second written, first published) set in Paris in the 30s and narrated by the most unreliable mesmerist Pierre Pain. In some ways it reminded me of one of Nabokov's early, funky Russian novellas. It is all [...]

Mr. Bolaño truly is the most productive of dead writers. Almost a decade in the sod and still churning out work hither and thither. The Insufferable Gaucho is due for UK release this year, and The Third Reich is slated for release next year in the US. The man’s unstoppable!Monsieur Pain is his attempt at a novel in the genteel English vein: a work of straightforward historical fiction written in a hurried first-person with a tacked-on epilogue. It’s an atypical book in the Roberto canon, a [...]

Politics, and the fascination for labyrinthsIn the worldly sense, Monsieur Pain is a failure, simply because it pretends - or rather it has to pretend - to be a novel. First time Bolano readers may even be expected to hurl it toward the nearby wall.But Bolano's work relies, not just for its comprehensiveness, but also for its comprehension, on the entire body of the work, and also on Bolano's life itself. Bolano is not the kind of writer you can read one book of and form an opinion. In fact, to [...]

I've been meaning to read some Bolano for the past two years but the books I bought are massive tomes. When this slight and intriguing number appeared in my bookshop I found myself compelled to read it. If I had more free time this would most certainly have been a one sitting read and I think it almost requires that level of attention to get the most out of it. The set up is strong with a protagonist you'll be more than happy to take a slightly surreal journey with whilst the descriptive passage [...]

It is 1938, Paris and Monsieur Pain, a noted mesmerizer is called by a friend, to the bedside of Vallejo, who is dying from the hiccups. Yes, I said hiccups. This is a mystery, why does Vallejo die or was he murdered?He will become known in the future as the most famous of Latin America's poets. The Spanish civil war has ended, the Nazis soon to become very important and paranoia is a facet of life. This is one very veiled book, it is strange and I one time it reminded me of the TV show Fringe, [...]

İlk sayfalarını okurken paralel evrende, başka bir Bolano tarafından yazılmış hissini yaşadım. Ancak olaylar gelişmeye başlayınca "huylu huyundan vazgeçmez" dercesine, kitaplarında eksik etmediği tekinsizlik havasını ve küçük saplantılarını oraya buraya serpiştirdiğini fark ettim. Şairlere olan saplantısı ve ikinci dünya savaşına olan merakı(burada yine bir Wehrmacht hayranlığı sezdim) açıkça görülüyor. Avrupa'da yükselen faşizm dalgasının ve yaklaş [...]

There are some instances where great geniuses can go awry. When they are so invested in writing like themselves that they form a loose parody of lucid prose which in the end only leaves a bad taste. While I did enjoy Monsieur Pain for the first third or so, I must admit that the entire novel does fall apart. It doesn’t even read like Bolaño. It’s a pity. I don’t hate it however. I… just don’t love it.

I finally got around to finish reading it. I am still not sure whether I like Bolano. I very much enjoyed his short stories in "Last Evenings on Earth". They didn't feel like stories, but biographical sketches of writers at the margins of society. Here he creates a character sketch from the inside; we get Monsieur Pain's narration from his anxious psyche and though his narration is wrapped around a thinly plotted thriller about mesmerism and political intrigue, I cared less and less for everyone [...]

Como dijo la profesora Marsimián, a uno de los escritores que le gustan le gustan hasta los libros malos. No digo que este sea el caso, pero: 1) no creo que si Bolaño no fuera uno de mis escritores favoritos hubiera leído, ni apreciado, este libro; y 2) no se lo recomendaría a alguien no familiarizado con este escritor.Hay fragmentos del mejor Bolaño, ese que maneja una prosa poética melancólica y absurda. La mejor parte para mí es el final, el "Epílogo de varias voces", porque ahí el [...]

Another plotless enigma from Bolaño. It's set in Paris in 1938 when Pierre Pain, the eponymous narrator, a devotee of Mesmerism, is called in by his friend Madame Reynaud to see what he can do to halt the rapid decline of Cesar Vallejo. The Peruvian poet is apparently dying of hiccups. Reynaud recently lost her husband in a case in which Pain's intervention was ineffective, but now says she has "faith" in his ability to help Vallejo. Pain moves about a Paris beset by surrealist distortions: the [...]

The book begins in Paris in the spring of 1938. The narrator Pierre Pain a practitioner in acupuncture and mesmerism is requested by his friend, a young widow Madame Reynaud, with whom he is hopelessly in love, to attend at the hospital bedside of her friend Madame Vallejo’s husband César Vallejo. It is Madame Reynaud’s hope that using the occult sciences Pierre Pain may cure the patient’s chronic hiccups as his current doctors have been unable to do so.Pain tries to visit the dying man i [...]

This is my first exposure to Bolaño, but I am absolutely intrigued to pick up the rest of his novels and give them all a shot. I can only imagine what he can do with a bit more length in his books (as Monsieur Pain is a very short novel, just around 134 pages in the edition I read). This book will frustrate some readers. The way that Bolaño jumps between fragmented memories, the past, different locations, and his general hazy and foggy writing, makes the novel relatively confusing at certain p [...]

It starts so simple. You meet Monsieur Pain, a mesmerist, in 1938 Paris, who gets called upon by an old acquaintance to help a husband of her friend's who is dying of hiccups. Then it gets weird. The novel very quickly is mired in a Kafkaesque miasma of doubt and suffocating dread, this veteran of WWI attempting to navigate class, romance, age, old friendships and self doubt and comes to be about the dread of the looming nazi menace, particularly as embodied in an old friend who aids Franco's fo [...]

Some day I may look back and decide Roberto Bolaño wasn't really all that. But then again, I may just decide to never look back. There is a brevity and strength (dare I call it visceral realism) to Bolaño's work that I deeply appreciate, and feel is lost in so much modern literature. Each successive book I read only draws me in further.The lack of resolution in his stories, which in other places might drive me to fits of rage, only strengthens my belief that he was one of the best writers of t [...]

An interesting early novel by Bolano, this book is sort of like a David Lynch movie written by Herman Hesse or Camus by way of James Joyce and Dostoyevsky and some Bret Easton Ellis thrown in. Set in Paris in the late 30's, it follows a middle-aged acupuncturist/mesmerist who is a WWI veteran. He attempts to treat a dying South American poet on the eve of the German invasion of France, and after being denied entry to the hospital, wanders the streets, paranoid that he has become part of some kin [...]

This novella is set in 1938 Paris, as the famed mesmerist Pierre Pain is urgently summoned by his friend and love interest, the young widow Marcelle Reynaud. The Peruvian poet César Vallejo, whose wife is a close friend to Reynaud, is dying in the hospital with a severe and unremitting case of hiccups, and the two women believe that Pain is the only clinician who can save his life. Pain comes to the hospital, but encounters two mysterious Spanish men, who offer him a substantial bribe to not tr [...]

written in the early 1980's, monsieur pain is one of bolaño's earliest works. he had previously published the story under different titles (including the elephant path) while entering it into various provincial literary competitions throughout spain (a couple of which he won). in the preliminary note to monsieur pain, bolaño indicates that the "haphazard and erratic" fate of this short novel is "recounted in a story in last evenings on earth," presumably "sensini."based on actual events, monsi [...]

This novel felt very European, like some forgotten work from between the two great wars. The Bolaño I knew from other books was absent, or perhaps buried. As the story progressed I was half-hoping that the narrative might suddenly be stricken, and disgorge from it's chest a monster, a larval Bolaño that might run free to later infect the others with its deadly brood, to grow large and threaten the mission with acid blood and sharp teeth. Come to think of it, that's pretty much what he did.Late [...]
